Help. I have a new plumeria flowering but it almost looks like little eggs in the very base of the leaves

I cannot identify eggs but I tried to look. The pictures were not clear enough, sorry. Common pests are scale/mealybugs, spider mites, thrips and whiteflies. I would get a paper towel or acotton swab with rubbing alcohol to remove them. Then, be on the lookout for pests. If these are eggs, the parents would be larger and you might catch a glimpse of them and, preferably, a few pictures of the parents. Look during the day and also at night.
